5 Minutes on Voice

26 Oct


I have a very loud one

I have a high need to be heard

So much so that I often talk

too loud

too much

instead of listening

    Often saying nothing is better and wiser than saying anything. Yet, that is usually easier said than done! Thank you for the reminder to listen.

    Very Sweet… and quick to the point. I think those gifted with a teaching ability, that also have a strong heart to share what’s good, run into this very issue at times. I have this quote on my google page from Spurgeon to remind me of that very idea, because I use my mouth too much sometimes. I wonder if he (The prince of preachers) felt that way too, at times. 🙂

    “Priceless as the gift of utterance may be, the practice of silence in some aspects far excels it. Do not think me a Quaker. Well, be it so. Herein I follow George Fox most lovingly; for I am persuaded that most of us think too much of speech, which after all is but the shell of thought. Quiet contemplation, still worship, unuttered rapture, these are mine when my best jewels are before me. Brethren, rob not your heart of the deep sea joys; miss not the far-down life, by for ever babbling among the broken shells and foaming surges of the shore.” (Charles Spurgeon-Lectures to My Students, 51).

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      Love you, my friend! Thanks for sharing Spurgeon’s quote. Never thought about his feeling funny about using his mouth too much. Such wisdom in that quote!! Hugs to you 🙂
